I have no clue whether or not this is the correct way to do it but it builds.
Seems to work fine on aarch64 and x86_64.

  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"

This looks good (I didn't test it), but you might consider refactoring it to use a zshForBuild variable, so you don't have to repeat the whole command. See for a similar example.
